Halloween Subway Art

 I have seen these floating around blogland, and thought I'd give it a try!

The story of the chairs..

So, one morning I drove past a garage sale and saw 2 chairs that looked cute. I was already late for work, so I didn't stop. However, on my way home they were still out there, but close to the curb. I couldn't tell if they were left out for the taking or what. So, I stopped and knocked on the door of the house- no answer. I didn't know what to do!! So, I saw a price ($5/pair) on the chairs. I put $5 and a note in the front door of the house and took the chairs.

Before:

I removed the seats, painted it white (accidently used metal primer, oops!!) and got some outdoor fabric on clearance...

After:

So, I got this frame from Michaels for $2.00. I had a pack of Autumn fabric squares. Using some mod podge I covered the frame and got a lovely little decoration for my mantle.

A little burlap bow tops it off! I love burlap!

We will never forget...

God Bless my father-in-law, Firefighter Donald Regan who lost his life on 9/11/01 in the WTC.

"So bless New York's finest, our angels in blue. Giving us hope and helping us through. And bless New York's bravest, the FDNY, giving their sweat and their tears and their lives. And bless all the medics and our troops overseas, And the guys in the hardhats removing debris. Bless the everyday people who answered the ca...ll. Bless those who gave some, and those who gave all...."
